The Canticles of the Christian Church: Eastern and Western in Early and Medieval Times was written to address the need for scholarship on the Canticles’ original manuscripts. James Mearns saw the insufficient articles on the Church Fathers’ original writings as a call to action, and after pouring over every available manuscript, he produced these articles. The text examines Greek, Graeco-Latin, Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Persian, Slavonic, Syriac, Latin, and Monastic Canticles. Scholars of church history and those interested in hymns, psalms, and Canticles will find this text a useful addition to their digital library.
